US GENERAL SERVICE EAGLE COAT BUTTON RECOVERED AT CULP’S HILL, GETTYSBURG – KEN BREAM COLLECTION

$75.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1163-131C

Rich light chocolate patina.  Very minor push to face between eagle’s head and left wing. Shank present; backmark “SCOVILL MFG CO WATERBURY”.

This button was found by local Gettysburg resident and relic hunter Ken Bream. Mr. Bream was born and raised in Gettysburg and grew up in a house right next to the famous Peach Orchard. He graduated from Gettysburg High School and for a while worked for Johnny Johnson who owned the General Longstreet’s Headquarters Museum which once stood on Seminary Ridge, right along Confederate Avenue near the Longstreet Headquarters marker. Mr. Bream obtained some relics from this now defunct museum and dug many more on private property surrounding the battlefield and on the Confederate approach and retreat routes. This plate was obtained from the auction of Mr. Bream’s collection in October of 2021 and was from Lot# 264.  [LD] [PH:L]
